Not sure why you felt the need to tell us exactly what the two of you do for a living tbh.

It might help me as someone that is giving advice might have been in a similar boat or knew someone doing something similar... Sorry if I made you feel vexed....it was a fairly scumbaggy thing to write alright. Except my humblest apologies

Your job couldn't be any more relevant to the question you asked LOL


Teachers and firemen have long been on Trig's hitlist. We can add vets to the list too now I suppose.
A vet must have euthanised his beloved ferret or something

Where are the vacant properties though.  No much good if they are stuck up a mountain or in a very remote area.  

Some people want to live in remote areas or up a mountain, but there are plenty of derelict buildings between the canals in Dublin. A lot of work has been carried our in Summerhill in the last couple of years to bring these back up to spec but walk around any residential street around Dublin City centre and you will see it.

I saw a TV show, many moons ago, where a wealthy builder was taking over such properties and using local youth to work on them and learn a trade. It was making housing available, creating employment and giving locals an education. I never understood how more councils didn't pick up on this initiative.

Every major city in the world has a housing problem.
More than 50% of adults are priced out of the market and property developers are buying more than ever.

The amount of houses that the Dublin councils own is minuscule.  Any of the ones that are vacant are almost certainly privately owned and as a result not the councils responsibility.  

You said 250k are vacant.  I would be interested to know the geographic spread and how many are in service areas etc.

nobody else on the thread had an issue with him mentioning his job so what’s your point? .  Why does it bother you that he mentioned his job in the context of a debate about housing and how unaffordable it is for those with a decent job .

There are plenty of empty houses around but it depends what the definition is. Is it a kip that needs 200k spent on it to make it livable with no broadband in the area? I would wager a huge amount of them are.

The housing market is ****ish in Dublin. I would absolutely hate to be trying to buy there. Its nowhere near the same down here but it is starting to show signs that it is about to get very difficult. The market isn't normal at them moment. I'd say perspective buyers are gone up by about 30% with the amount of people who have saved deposits and been approved for a mortgage over the last year. But stock has gone down by about 15% as well. That's a hell of a swing

It was a debate about housing alright yet he could have just said we have two jobs no need whatsoever to say the exact type of jobs! Think it’s just the way Irish fans have gone in general and it’s very noticeable on this forum and on away trips especially that the fans have become very middle class and not so many working class fans anymore.

Wtf😀😀😀. Who bloody cares if a person is a teacher or a bricklayer or a ceo, a bib man or unemployed on an Ireland trip.   Part of the fun of a trip is meeting people from all walks of life and not giving a sh*t about any of that.  You seem to have a hang up about what you call middle class people.  

Teachers are on roughly the median wages esp in their 30s.  How does someone making 30 to 40k a year in their 30s and can’t afford to buy a house in anyway middle class ffs. Many bricklayers would earn a good lot more than a teacher too.  

I think your out of date views of the world are redundant to be honest.

There is a serious over-simplification of the term "middle-class" and how it applies to Irish households.

Big time and in many senses it’s out of date and it is meaningless.  In some instances traditional working class jobs can earn much more than traditionally middle class jobs.  Anyway who gives a sh*t, when I meet someone on an Ireland trip whether they run their own business or are a ceo or they are unemployed or a public sector worker or a solicitor, I don’t care.  Will they buy me a drink is my only question 😀😀😀

LOLLOLLOL I wasn't debating about housing ya mad thing, I had a very specific question about a mortgage that occupations would play a part. Anyway, thanks to the couple of lads that gave me useful answers. And thank you Trigboy for giving me a good laugh!! You'll probably recognise me from 114 and you'll realise I'm upper class, not middle classThumbs Down
